Gay Michael Sam Praised and Christian Tim Tebow Mocked – Society’s Football Double Standard?
by Kevin Fobbs on May 12, 2014 in BuzzPo,

With the draft selection of Michael Sam by the St. Louis Rams as the first openly gay professional football player in the nation the universal cheering by mainstream media and society is haunting. One only has to travel back to when Tim Tebow an openly bona fide Christian was vilified by mainstream media, the liberal establishment leaders for declaring his devotion to Christ by kneeling on the field of gridiron battle before a game.

Quote
This stark contrast and blatant football double standard was brought to light on Sunday when national football sensation DeMarcus Walker of Florida State, the reigning champs of college football tweeted about his concern, according to the Blaze.

Walker posted several Tweets about the openly gay Sam who has been embraced by Hollywood stars as well as liberal entertainers. Walkers Twitter messages have been retweeted over 9,000 times so far, and will most likely go higher.

In fact, the college football player posted a cartoon which showed a stark comparison between the reaction gay NBA player Jason Collins received when he announced that he was gay compared to Tim Tebow’s treatment. Collins received a call and thumbs up from Obama, who found time in his busy Oval Office schedule to high five the basketball player.

Can't wait until some offensive lineman blows him a kiss across the line of scrimmage in the set position for the snap.

Ala like "Doc Holiday" did in the movie Tombstone.....at the OK corral.

Michael Sams is going to have to be an All-Pro for it to stop.

I wonder if any member of the Rams will have the guts to express how he really feels about having this guy in the locker room.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open."

Distracted yet?
There never are enough distractions, are there?

Read that as power puff at first. That's a team I'd watch. After all, there is nothing in the rules that prohibits flying ....  :whistle:
